Metric have just announced new US tour dates and thankfully, one of our favorite Canadian imports are finally swinging through New York City for a proper live performance. Still touring in support of 2009's spectacular album Fantasies, the band has added four shows to their trek of the States.
Coming off a string of shows down in Austin for SXSW, including sharing a bill with Muse over at Stubb's, Metric keep powering on through their tour of the territories. The band also has revealed that they're heading back to Montreal this summer for Osheaga. They'll be taking the stage on Sunday, August 1 (stay tuned for set time). Early bird passes are available now - check out the details here.
Check out the SPIN/Pepsi Refresh Challenge also, where Metric goes head-to-head with Broken Social Scene for a $100k grant to work with the Women's Funding Network, whose goal is to help eradicate the exploitation of women in America.
